Miles enjoys his versatility; he often finds his defined features, piercing eyes and baldness lend well to casting as a villain. Conversely, his warm smile, soothing voice and natural fatherly demeanor shine through his gentler and friendlier character portrayals.
At times, Miles sports a beard and glasses which contribute to the chameleon-like quality that has allowed him to enjoy a variety of character options throughout his career.
It's been said that actors are 'reality tourists.' Miles agrees, though he tends to think of himself as more of a 'reality surfer': "Actors spend their time tenaciously sampling life; borrowing from experience and observation to enhance the process of characterization."
